Bloody hell, it’s ob­vi­ous

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FEEDBACK -

MY thoughts on why Port peo­ple did not at­tend this meet­ing is - what a laugh - you re­ally need to be told by a group of stu­dents what is wrong when most of us know these facts any­way.

Why would any­one be­gin to imag­ine that read­ing a re­port is go­ing to make such a big dif­fer­ence when it is about time we woke up to the fact that the big­gest prob­lem we face is sim­ply that Australia has now be­come too ex­pen­sive to visit. The rain­forests of Bor­neo are far more at­trac­tive as tourists can ac­tu­ally see an­i­mals and there are mon­keys in the trees - not bats.

Due to our high wages and cost of liv­ing in this coun­try ev­ery­thing has now be­come too ex­pen­sive and most of the free things are hardly worth go­ing to. Un­for­tu­nately we are all the vic­tims of bad plan­ning prac­tices by our Gov­ern­ments and now have an over sup­ply of accommodation and eat­ing places so apart from our de­creas­ing busy pe­riod, it is ex­tremely dif­fi­cult for any­one in busi­ness to make a de­cent liv­ing and I would as­sume that no end of meet­ings is go­ing to change that within the next few years!. your con­stituents?

And are you pre­pared to pro­mote the re-es­tab­lish­ment of the Dou­glas Shire Coun­cil to the ben­e­fit of your con­stituents and the re­main­der of the Cairns Re­gional Coun­cil?

I have known Ju­lia Leu for many years, and know that she ticks the yes box on all of the above.

While I don’t agree with ev­ery decision Coun­cil­lor Leu makes, I do be­lieve she has a bet­ter un­der­stand­ing than I on how one needs to work in gov­ern­ment to achieve pos­i­tive re­sults.

It’s time for the chal­leng­ing men to stand up and let us know pre­cisely how much ef­fort they will put in to rep­re­sent­ing such a unique area and it’s proud peo­ple.
